Hi,

I will be in India this July/beginning of August and would love to do a 3 or 4 day, moderate trek somewhere with nice weather and beautiful scenery. Thinking Valley of Flowers, but not sure we have enough time, and would love to know other options.

Hi, I have read alot from this forum but some advice would still be appreciated for my itinerary.

Chennai
Trichy
Madurai
Alappuzha (for day time backwater boat ride)
Kochi

However, having read more, I think I would find Mysore more interesting than the temples…

Hello there
Arriving with a flight from Kathmandu and waiting 30 hours in Delhi for my flight to Europe
First flight is with indigo
Second flight with Jetairways
Do you know if I can send ten luggage straight to Europe in Kathmandu?
Or have to pick it up in Delhi, go out through immigration and then check it in again with Jetairways?
Can I stay at the airport?
Thank you!

Hi friends! I am travelling solo in India flying into Kochi early July. I am looking to meet up with other solo travellers who don't mind a bit of a gypsy life. I don't have too many plans and like to stay flexible. What tips and recommendations to others have for me in southern India? Also, looking to volunteer/wwoof on farms or conservation programs :)
